The action

This mansion was converted into six condo suites in the 1990s.

This former mansion near Sir Winston Churchill Park was converted into six separate condominium suites in the 1990s. The last one sold in 2013, so it was assumed that listing this two-storey unit early March would draw significant interest. Only 10 potential buyers came through the unit before the sellers accepted a $1.35-million offer by the day’s end.

“[Boutique suites] come up occasionally, but it’s certainly worth the wait,” agent Megan Till-Landry said.

“We were lucky with timing on this listing. While COVID-19 was beginning to surface, it had not yet impacted the real estate market.”

This 1,521-square-foot suite is at the southwest corner of the brick structure dating back to the 1920s. It features private outdoor space off the bedroom upstairs and a gas fireplace in the living room and a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bar in the dining room. A den can be accessed off the living room.

Parking is provided in a detached garage. Monthly fees of $599 include the cost of water.

The agent’s take

The second-floor master suite features two terraces and a cathedral ceiling.

“This particular unit was spacious and well renovated," Ms. Till-Landry said. “And it looked out to the treetops.”

“The master sits on the second floor of the unit with a gorgeous cathedral ceiling, an ensuite and two terraces.”
